Crates vs Boxes. Which Is Better?..
This article offers a comparison between crates vs boxes. Crates are the buzz at the moment because of the benefits they bring to people who find moving a challenging experience.
While there will always be a place for cardboard packing boxes, crates are finding wider acceptance because of their ease of use, re-usability, durability, and economy.
Crates help to make you organized
The benefit of moving crates is that they ‘urge’ you to unpack. Crate hire is the new solution for household and office packing, and because they have to be returned at the end of the hire period, you have a fixed timeline to unload them. In others words, they encourage you to be organised. This is fantastic if the thought of packing overwhelms you.
Crates are delivered ready to go, are less labour intensive as no assembly is necessary, which makes for greater efficiency. Just open the attached lid, fill and stack. When combined with labels , (usually supplied free) , they offer a quick and efficient turnaround that makes total sense.
When crates are emptied, they simply nest inside one another, saving you from the mess boxes create. They come in 2 standard sizes of 73 litres and 50 litres just perfect for most packing needs. What’s more these two sizes will inter stack which means the large crates can also stack on top of the small crates, making the most of truck space when being loaded.
New Box-Free Moving System is The Modern Alternative to Boxes
Cardboard box manufacturers keep passing on their costs to wholesalers every year at between 4-6% which makes them a cumbersome commodity.
The product distribution industry in Europe and increasingly in Australia are using the crate reuse/return system because of the efficiencies they produce. It’s the reason you will see a lot of the collapsible style of crates in places like Coles and Woolworths for example.
Now crates are making inroads into the Australian Moving Industry and companies like BoxnCrateHire and ValuMove for example, have been providing those efficiency benefits to their customers for over 8 years. Going ‘Box Free‘ not only makes moving easier , it’s cleaner and greener at the same time.

When compared to cardboard boxes in terms of cost, re usability, ease of use, online ordering, and delivery, the benefits of the “box free” crate hire system far outweigh those of the cardboard packing box for local moving. And maybe just in time because the moving industry has been heavily dependent on cardboard for many years and is responsible for a lot of waste. If you want to reduce the hassle of moving, and prefer an efficient, no waste move, then crates are the perfect solution .
